DECORATING THE CHRISTMAS TREE IS A FAMILY AFFAIR

Sure, Lee-Ann Liebenberg’s successful 10-year run on the international modelling scene brought her fame and glamour. But the flipside of that life was that it took her away from the people and the country she loves. I travelled all over the world for two weeks at a time,’ she says. Her decision to trade the international scene for fewer, smaller jobs locally wasn’t made lightly, but she hasn’t looked back. In fact, she’s flourishing now – not only as a model, but also as a mother to Gia, five, and Gabriella, one. When I had Gia I didn’t want to take on work that would take me away from my family. I enjoyed a successful career before she was born, but nothing fulfils me as much as being a mom. I am still very passionate about what I do, so when the right job comes along – one that doesn’t compromise my family – I do definitely take it on!’ Born in Roodepoort to an Afrikaans mum and English dad, Lee-Ann describes a loving upbringing, along with her three siblings Adrienne, Allen and Ryan. My mom jokes that she had Ryan seven years after me because I was too naughty for her to have another child! My husband Nicky was also raised Afrikaans; we share similar backgrounds, are very much alike and have the same core values that we learnt from our parents and will pass on to our children.’
